Your 20th week

      Your Baby

      The lanugo hair has spread all over the body of your child, which makes it look like a little puppy. However, it will be completely repelled when you reach the 8th month of your pregnancy. Your baby is about 16 centimetres tall and weighs about 300 grams now.

      Back pain may occur at the 20th week. Pay attention to your posture and walk upright. Supporting straps can relieve your back aches. Your chest had also increased significantly in volume again. If the expectant father was lucky, he may be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat when he puts his ears on your tummy.

      Our AptaAdvantage Tip

      Relieve your back of strains as often as possible. Stand upright by lifting your ribcage and straightening your neck as you align the hips symmetrically. Always bend both knees when lifting loads and keep your back straight as you stand up. Massages often work wonders for back pain as you can loosen tensions. This could also strengthen the relationship between partners.
